Private Residence – address to be announced at registration
** Limited availability!**
Your relationship with your partner is at the heart of your stepfamily experience and knowing how to manage and grow it in the best way is essential to having the best stepfamily life possible.
We created this retreat for you to share a life changing experience with your partner, where you will learn and start to use the tools and strategies that you need to form the ultimate partnership, connect with each other on a deeper level and be able to manage the challenges of stepfamily life as a true team.
This is the place for you to come and enjoy some intimate time and learning together, support each other, meet like-minded stepfamilies and have some fun!
Often, we are so focused on building our relationships with our stepkids, that we don’t find the time to deeply connect with our partners and form the ultimate team. Sometimes this is when our relationship suffers or just isn’t the deep and loving connection that we would want it to be.
This is a wonderful opportunity for you both to heighten your connection with each other and your commitment to having the stepfamily life you want. We will show you how that is possible.
This is for you if you want to:
Improve your communication with your partner and feel deeply understood and supported by them
Create a vision for the future of your ideal stepfamily life and learn how to work together to make that a reality
Strengthen your connection and understanding of each other to form a deeper bond and closeness
Know the best way to support each other when dealing with typical challenges like the ex, kids and parenting styles
Feel like you can be yourself at all times and are supported and loved as you are
Understand each others’ values and know how to honor them in the best way and use them to shape your family life together
Have a thriving step family experience and loving and supportive relationship
**BONUS** Enjoy a ‘Meet ‘n Greet’ with Barb’s husband and some of the stepkids. They’re grown now and will tell it like it was and is. No topics are off limits. Ask whatever you need!
We cover all the typical challenges around stepfamily dynamics as well as other common challenges that don’t usually get dealt with, such as how best to manage your finances.
You will go home with a refreshed and renewed relationship and the tools and strategies that will create the partnership and step-family life you want.
Everyone is welcome – whether your relationship is breaking down or you are just committed to improving it and making it the best it can be, then this is the place for you.
After this retreat you will know the best way to deal with situations together such as:
The dynamics between step child and step parent
What is the role of the step parent and biological parent
How best to manage your relationships with step-kids, extended family and ex partners
What language and tools to use to achieve the family life and relationships you want
Our retreats are fun. You will laugh while understanding your partner and your family from a whole new perspective.
Our workshops are lively, fun, often hilarious, and designed with deep transformation and immediate impact as a priority. You’ll leave with new perspectives and new tools, and leave behind old wounds and the residue of failure and frustration.
Welcome dinner Thursday night, lunch on Friday and Saturday. Snacks provided.
An opportunity to have an honest conversation with real stepkids & biokids who grew up in a stepfamily.
All classes will take place at Barb Goldberg’s house in Scottsdale, Arizona. You will be provided the address when you register
Dates for the retreat are June 13-16, 2019. Retreat begins Thursday evening with a welcome dinner and concludes at 12pm on Sunday
You will need to find lodging in Scottsdale, Arizona (we will help you with this) and meals are on your own (except for those noted above). This will allow you the much needed alone time you and your partner have probably been missing.
We can’t wait to help you and your partner build a stronger and more fulfilling relationship!
